, all the way back to 1990. mickey edwards was still in congress then. an eight-term representative from oklahoma, and a formidable leader among conservatives who nonetheless knew how to work with opponents to get things done. he chaired the republican policy committee, was a founding trustee of the conservative heritage foundation, and served as national chairman of the american conservative union. after redistricting by democrats cost him his seat in 1993, he taught at harvard and princeton, became vice president of the aspen institute, and wrote this book: "reclaiming conservatism: how a great american political movement got lost--and how it can find its way back." now he's out with another book, one calling for real, even radical, change: "the parties versus the people: how to turn republicans and democrats into americans." mickey edwards, welcome. >> thanks, bill. it's good to see you again. >> and congratulations on the book, although i can't imagine it's made you the most popular visitor to the house republican caucus. >> not at all. but it wouldn't make me popular in the democrat
a lot of anti-president obama books like edwards kline "the amateur," "the great destroyer" "i am the change," and "obama's america," critical of president obama. do these books sell well? >> guest: they do sell well because they are rightly or wrongly a counter point. readers wish to buy that that, and as a result, these books have an an active audience. now that he's re-elected, i'm serve publishers who are conservatively inclined will continue to produce books that sell well because they will continue to appeal to an audience that demands these books. >> host: now, bob, have you interviewed any of the critical authors? >> guest: no -- well, let's see, glenn beck, but he's not recently taken on exactly president obama. sort of interesting. i think this is generally true, who whoever -- whoever is in the power in the white house, the opposite political slant on books does better. when a liberal democrat is in the white house, conservatives tend to do belter. when there's a conservative in the white house like bush, books critical of the president tend to do better. in fact, i rem
edward klein joined booktv at freedom fest to talk about his new york times best selling book "the amateur". he looks critically at president obama before and after he reached the white house. here is what he had to say. >> the book currently on your screen has spent several weeks on the new york times best-seller list, many weeks at number one. "the amateur" has been written by edward klein who is our guest, booktv on c-span2. where did you get a title for this book? >> guest: it came from a meeting bill clinton had in chapel:00, new york, north of new york city where he has a home. this was back in august of 2011. his wife, his daughter and a bunch of friends to meet with him because he had news. he had done a secret poll in 2011 and polls showed if hillary clinton would challenge barack obama for the democratic presidential nomination in 2012, he thought she could win. she was surprised by all this. she said what can i do? secretary of state, i have lunch with the man every thursday. what about loyalty? he said there is no such word as loyalty in politics. he went on to say the
written by edward cline, who is our guest on booktv on c-span2. where did you get the title for this book. >> it came from a meeting that bill clinton had in chappaqua new york, north of york city where he has a home. this is back in august 2001. he invited several gas and it showed that he wanted to challenge the president and she is surprised by all this. and she said though, how can i do this, and the secretary of state. i have the ones with the miniver thursday. what about loyalty? and he said, there is no such word as loyalty in politics. he then went on to say that the people. the aaa credit rating of the united states, the barack obama was, in his words, an amateur. i spoke to people at that meeting. when i heard that, i said, that's the perfect title for this book, "the amateur." >> president clinton has denied publicly that he has used that term. >> i will tell you an interesting story. he has denied it, but hillary has told his friends that she suspected that of all people, chelsea had told me about this. now, that's not true. i've never met chelsea clinton. but apparently she h
there at king edward the hospital for more than four years. she cared for hundreds of patients. but that's really about it. the hospital isn't even saying the manner of death but according to reports here in the uk, multiple sources say she took her own life and was found on the hospital premises this morning. they tried to revive her but unsuccessfully. the hospital interestingly said that they have been supporting her through this difficult time and telling us that she was having a tough time. we don't know exactly why or what else was going on in this woman's life. but it appears that she did commit suicide on the grounds of the hospital. anyone else who worked with her but people described as stunned, that the news is staggering. one of the things that this prank phone call really highlighted, aside from the fact that it was a breach of security, was the kindness and unsuspecting nature of both of the nurses who took the phone call. this nurse in question today was the one who originally took the call and then transferred it to the duchess of cambridge's ward. the hospital even said,
saddened to learn of her death. >> gullable nurse on duty at london's king edward's the seventh hospital. when her heinous was admitted for morning sickness. helping out on the desk when the two audit strallian dj's called pretending to be queen elizabeth and prince charles >> assured that their royal majesty was on the phone. reveals private details of kate's condition. >> i want to see how her little tummy bug is going. >> she is sleeping at the moment >> >> understandably mortified she had helped them get details. she then killed herself. >> we can confirm that she was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. >> facing severe and incendiary backlash over the hoax. the station profoundly apoll devises and suspends indefinitely the djs involved but the station rejects the allegation that their prank is what caused the suicide. >> no one can reasonably foresee what actually happened in this case. it's incredibly tragic. every one of us are deeply saddened. we are incredibly sad for the family. >> the franksters invaded the pregnancy of a sick woman who happens to be a princess

[applause] you have been wondering what i have been doing and i have been wondering what you have been doing. [laughter] >> those who were disappointed by this outcome, the democrats elated by this outcome -- given the conventional wisdom around this campaign, the president's approval ratings that were barely above 50%, often dipping below it, the unemployment around 8%, gdp growth stock of around 2% -- the conventional wisdom was that should -- that this president should not be reelected. as you take a look at what happened two weeks ago, how do you assess this? >> let me just say first that i made a very good living and politics betting against conventional wisdom. it is a general principle of mine that the conventional wisdom is almost always wrong and it was wrong here. it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles and journalism is that we look at what happened in the last election or pas
to me. it's men in power, thinking they can get away with it, bill clinton, john edwards, newt gingrich. one after the other. men in power think they live by different rules, that's why he deserves to be top of the chart. >> let's turn to the royal family. even the royal family couldn't escape the list. >> well, absolutely not. and in this case, though, prince harry, the kid's had trouble after trouble. if you invite a bunch of people to your room, get drunk and play strip poker, allow them to take pictures, you're going to be in the press. you're going to be in the tabloid. he's a horrible prince harry in that regard. the duchess unfortunately for her, had some expectations of privacy, she was alone on a french villa. they used long lenses to take pictures of her. that's why he deserves to be in the media, she doesn't. >> is it a double standard, because he's a guy. everyone said, you know what, they kind of brushed it off a little bit. if a woman, a female member of the royal family had taken pictures like prince harry, it would be quite a different story. >> i think it would be, but

: that's what i wonder sometimes, we feel -- john edwards used to use the two americas and it literally feels like i'm sitting here in l.a., and it feels like we're talking about two different countries. >> we are. and it's a totally republican-run state too. >> stephanie: at least the good news is mickey the president was reelected and he has done more for gay rights than any of the previous presidents combined. so hopefully we're moving forward >> yeah, but it is also up to the individual states. >> stephanie: i really hope it gets decided at the supreme court level, because i feel like you can't have different laws all over the country, it literally makes it a mess. >> it does. work benefits in one state, they move to another state, those benefits are denied. it's a huge mess. >> stephanie: yep.

as an important person. and that is edward meese. he was first an adviser and attorney general. he said there has been a liberal agenda. above all, roe versus wade banned abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution. there was a lawyer who wanted work on behalf of that agenda. john roberts and samuel alito. 1985 in a memo. justice alito wrote what can be made of this opportunity to advance and bring about the eventual overruling of roe versus wade. later that year, apply for a promotion he wrote i'm particularly proud of my contribution. .. so reagan's people went all the way to the intermediate appeals court in arizona. not even the arizona supreme court to find a remarkable figure who buys and a sandra day o'connor. sandra day o'connor is not a social conservative for a religious conservative or anything like the kind of conservatives that dominate the republican party now and that was fine with ronald reagan. he didn't care. it wasn't his agenda either and he's very proud of this nomination of o'connor. 1996, chief justice burger stepped down. reagan elevated rehnquist as chief justice, named

in children. erica edwards has the story. >> these kids are doing their own thing on the playground. here they are competing with one another in a virtual world. this is combination computer game, social network and real world exercise. >> our idea is not to say that technology is the problem but rather embrace it and say it could be part of the solution. >> kids wear a power band that contains a three axis accelerometer. >> you swipe it into a base station that wirelessly upthere's the our website. >> on the website, the kids see which of their friends scored the most exercise in a day. >> i did not notice smack talk. >> although bragging rights are involved, kids can only communicate with their friends by selecting a predetermined list of positive phrases and virtual high fives. it targets the 8 to 13-year-old crowd and child obesity experts say it's during this period that physical activity plummets. >> it's a vulnerable period during the middle school transition and parents may have to work harder to find children outlets for activity. >> the cool thing is that you don't have to be a

. >> hi. i'm bren edwards, i'm from "politico." i wanted to ask, recently there's been a lot of press because top conservatives -- [inaudible] and they're saying it's not because -- it's not because of the way -- it's -- [inaudible] i would like to know if you have any comments on that? >> well, i think it's wrong. i think it's unfortunate. i think it's not healthy. i think it's wrong. here you've got -- and i think it's largely because these guys have voted against some of the big issues -- they vote geth against the debt creaming, they voted conservative. i think it's unfortunate it took place. and hopefully there's a way to help fix it. we'll see going forward. but you think about, i mean, the exam, come on. tim huelskamp from kansas represents 70% of the state. the member from that district has been on the ag committee for like -- since there's been an ag committee, since kansas has been a state, 150 or whatever it is. it's been a long, long time. and he gets kicked off that committee and oh, by the way he has a ph.d. in ag policy. it make noes sense to me. so i think it's wrong a
